Microsoft’s journey to working remotely
For years, Microsoft has been steadily making changes to empower its staff to work effectively remotely. Here are the top 9 ways the company has discovered how to work best.
Virtual classrooms, real learning
Share, learn, and collaborate easily with our suite of Microsoft tools for students and educators.
"Our unique role as a platform and tools provider allows us to connect the dots, bring together an ecosystem of partners, and enable organizations of all sizes to build the digital capability required to address these challenges."
Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft
Whether you’re new to remote work, temporarily working from home, or on extended leave, Microsoft is here to help you stay productive. Chat, call, meet and collaborate with colleagues from across the world and even access company resources remotely. From 1:1 meetings or live events with up to 10,000 people, to remote technical support, Microsoft solutions delivers a consistent experience across all platforms.
Working remotely can introduce a few new security concerns, especially for those who aren’t accustomed to it. CISOs and admins need to urgently look at new scenarios and threat vectors as their companies become a distributed organization overnight. Thankfully, we're monitoring over 6.5 trillion signals to keep your business secure.
Working remotely can be isolating, so it’s important to be deliberate about reaching out and connecting with colleagues and customers. Use Microsoft solutions to get together with your colleagues virtually to foster and maintain morale, while ensuring that you continue to engage your customers and drive positive experiences despite.
Remote work doesn’t have to mean feeling remote. With Microsoft Teams, you’ll be able to meet, collaborate, and share with colleagues from all over the world.
